You Might Have To Make Another Psn Account If That Don't Work Then You'll Have To Call Sony For Support

That's your answer. You can't change your country but you can make a new account. Support won't help youOff Topic: What's with the capitals lee? Just trying to be annoying?

Hi Guys,

 

There is actually a very simple workaround for this! I live in the netherlands and I was living in Italy so my account is italian buy my credit card is issued in the netherlands.

 

What I did is I created an italian paypal account with an italian home address etc...(didnt associated any creditcard or something)  once the account was created I transferred 10 euro from my dutch bank to the italian paypal account and, once paypal received my money, I was finally able to charge my wallet in the playstation network and I could finally buy extensions pack for GT5!

 

Hope this will be helpful for someone and in the meanwhile: Sony **** you!
